NEWS - CREEPSHOW
Horror streaming service Shudder announced new castings for its anthology series Creepshow. Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, Saw’s Tobin Bell and the original Creepshow film, Adrienne Barbeau will all star in King’s Gray Matter. The episode will be directed Greg Nicotero.
“I feel I’m in great company getting the opportunity to direct a story written by Steve. Between Salem’s Lot, Pet Sematary and The Stand, I’ve always found his stories rich in relatable characters forced into supernatural situations beyond their control—the everyday person’s primal fears. To visualize ‘Gray Matter’ for Creepshow with the help of Adrienne, Giancarlo and Tobin was about as good as it gets for a horror fan from Pittsburgh!”
“I was thrilled when Greg asked me to join the Creepshow world once again. And then working with Tobin and Giancarlo, with Greg as our director, well, that was the icing on the cake — no, not that cake. Oh, you know what I mean.”
The Creepshow TV series has begun filming, and executive producer Greg Nicotero has provided a first look at the new and improved version of The Creep.

This press release was sent out by Shudder last week and tells us that work has begun on the TV show Creepshow. It's unclear though why it says "as-yet unannounced Stephen King story" when it was earlier reported that it's Survivor Type they're adapting.
Press Release: Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, announced today that production has begun on its first long-form original TV series, Creepshow, in Atlanta, GA. Executive produced by The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero, the horror series is based on the iconic 1982 anthology film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero.
The six-episode season will feature an adaptation of an as-yet unannounced Stephen King story, as well as segments based on stories by other award-winning and acclaimed horror writers, including:
● “By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2)
● “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
● “The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms)
● “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead)
● “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker)
● “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes)
● “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House)

Bloody Disgusting reports that Creepshow will be an anthology series on Shudder. It dosn't say if it will be using stories by King or just the name though...
EW reports that Shudder is bringing back Creepshow, only not as a film franchise. Next year, the streaming service will launch “Creepshow” as an anthology series, with makeup master Greg Nicotero (“The Walking Dead”) directing the premiere!
Nicotero will also executive-produce and supervise the show’s creative elements. His KNB EFX Group will handle the show’s creature and makeup effects.
The series is scheduled to debut on Shudder in 2019. Each episode will tell original stories and be helmed by a different filmmaker.
